Printing overview for students

Printing is available for student use at Office of Information Technology computer labs. Students may print from lab computers, laptops, and mobile devices to black-and-white or color printers. Print jobs may be submitted from lab computers or wirelessly via RUWireless.

Print jobs must be released by the patron via the print release stations located in each computer lab printing location in Rutgers–New BrunswickRutgers–Newark, and Rutgers–Camden. Your RUID card is required to release print jobs.

Printing rates

There will be no charge for the first $30 of printing that each individual releases during every six-month printing period (January to June; July to December). The $30 allocation is the same for all students, independent of the details of their academic and university arrangements (number of credits, part-time vs full-time, etc.), as well as faculty and staff. Rates for printing are as follows:

  • $.04 per sheet for black and white printing
  • $.25 per sheet for color printing

Please note that the $30 allocation is equivalent to:

  • 750 sheets in black and white, OR
  • 120 sheets in color, OR
  • any combination thereof

Remember, single-sided and double-sided sheets have the same rates, so everyone is encouraged to always print double-sided, which is the default setting on most Office of Information Technology lab computers.
